LGBT Leaders is an organization aimed towards LGBT students interested in business and politics. Our annual conference brings together students, politicians, business leaders and activists to discuss issues faced by the LGBT community in politics and in the workplace. In our inaugural conference, we heard from leaders such as Lord Browne, Evan Davis, Anthony Watson, as well as partners from law firms and professional services companies. Our political panels hosted MPs and MEPs from the UK’s largest parties, as well as Lord Smith, the first ever openly gay MP to be elected to Parliament.
This October, we are hosting our fourth conference in the Clifford Chance headquarters. We will be bringing together over 200 students for an engaging and inspiring day of keynotes, panel sessions and networking opportunities. This conference will prepare students for a challenging application period for graduate jobs and internships, and ensure they meet current leaders who can advise and support them as they enter the workplace.
Our organizing committee is comprised of current students and recent graduates, with interests in a range of different industries. We are hugely indebted to our sponsors, many of whom are returning to sponsor this October’s conference. Clifford Chance have been incredible hosts and Platinum Sponsors, and Freshfields and Mayer Brown will be joining as Gold Sponsors of our event. We are also excited to continue our media partnership with PinkNews, the world’s largest LGBT media organization.
